I would love to hear from anyone researching Jurkic Yurkic Jurkich Yurkich Jurkie Yurkie Jurkitsch Jurick Yurick from the area that was Szarvas Slavonia Austria and became Szarvas Verocze Hungary and now is Sarvas, Croatia.
The family I am researching is of German descent. Our family used the name Jurick / Yurick but I believe may be related to 2 families in Summit that used the Jurkic variations.

I found a Frank Jurkic / Yurkic born cir 1880 who came from Sarvas in 1906 to Summit county, Ohio. His wife was Maria Wagner born Vucevci, Osijek Parish, Austria. 2 known children were Juro which may be George born 1905 in Sarvas and Stefan..probably became Steven born 1909 in Ohio.

The other family was John / Johann Jurkic born cir 1883/84 who arrived in 1907. His wife was Katherine ( Torn ?) and their children were Katherine born cir 1908 in Austria, Peter born 1912/13, Rosaline born 1921, and Joseph born 1924.
